• WWE Hall Of Famer Says Chris Benoit Put Him On The Map

During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T talked about not wanting to wrestle again, his proudest moment as a wrestler, matches with Chris Benoit & more.

Below are the highlights:

On not wanting to wrestle anymore:

“My students are gonna carry from here on end because I won’t be doing any more wrestling matches, because it hurts (laughs). I’m looking forward to let my guys go out there and perform at the very highest level.”

On what’s the proudest moment of his wrestling career:

“Going to Iraq, performing for the troops in 40 degree weather, in my underwear, feeling like it’s 70 degrees, feeling so proud to be over there representing the country. And giving our soldiers a little bit of a break. I’ve still got that photo on my wall.”

On his matches with Chris Benoit:

“The best of seven with Benoit is vividly in my brains, seared in my brain. Man, I can’t help but be comfortable with it. It was the best I ever did, the best a lot of people have ever seen. The best of seven was epic in so many different ways because he put me on the map as a wrestler.

He made me do things I thought I never could do. Definitely going to always be a touchy situation just because of the way he left this Earth, but the matches – they were classics. They were the best. If I go watch a match, those are the matches I watch.”
